FIELD PHENOMICS IN BREEDING
Friday March 24, 4031 Throckmorton Hall
Presented by Scott Chapman, Ph.D.
Senior Principal Research Scientist, CSIRO Agriculture, The University of Queensland Australia
ABSTRACT: Despite justified skepticism of statements in the modeling literature, some breeders have the expectation that the quantitative application of gene to phenotype understanding within crop models will contribute substantially to the future of plant breeding....read more.
Scott Chapman is a Senior Principal Research Scientist with CSIRO in Australia and is visiting Kansas State University as a Visiting Fulbright Senior Scholar for six months.
Scott's research interests lie in the genetic and environment effects on the growth of field crops, particularly where drought dominates. He is looking at the application of quantitative approaches (crop simulation and statistical methods) and phenotyping (aerial imaging, canopy monitoring) to integrate the understanding of interactions of genetics, growth and development and the bio-physical environment on crop yield.
